Scientists discover a new electronic state of matter

A research team led by professors from the University of Pittsburgh Department of Physics and Astronomy has announced the discovery of a new electronic...

Artificial atoms create stable qubits for quantum computing

Quantum engineers from UNSW Sydney have created artificial atoms in silicon chips that offer improved stability for quantum computing. In a paper published in Nature...

Scientists catch beautiful outcome of stellar fight

Astronomers using the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA), in which ESO is a partner, have spotted a peculiar gas cloud that resulted from a...

New quantum switch turns metals into insulators

Most modern electronic devices rely on tiny, finely-tuned electrical currents to process and store information. These currents dictate how fast our computers run, how regularly...

If you want to catch more light, twist it

A special class of materials known as “Weyl semimetals” have unusual physical properties. In these materials, researchers can separate electrons by their “handedness.” That’s whether the...

Astronomers find ‘vampire’ star sucking life from victim

Astronomers have found a 'vampire' star in the midst of a feeding frenzy, with the help of an automated program that is sifting through...

Stars need a partner to spin Universe’s brightest explosions

When it comes to the biggest and brightest explosions seen in the Universe, University of Warwick astronomers have found that it takes two stars...

What’s the temperature of dark matter?

Physicists are taking the temperature of dark matter, the mysterious substance that makes up about a quarter of our universe. We have very little idea...

How sensitive can a quantum detector be?

Quantum physics is moving out of the laboratory and into our everyday lives. Despite the big headline results about quantum computers solving problems impossible for...

Scientists are taking the temperature of dark matter

Warm, cold, just right? Physicists at the University of California, Davis are taking the temperature of dark matter, the mysterious substance that makes up about...
